Will Ryan Eggold's Max Goodwin and Freema Agyeman's Helen Sharpe get a happy ending? That will pretty much be the one question in fans' minds as 'New Amsterdam' gears up for a final run this fall. The hit NBC drama ran for four successful seasons and will conclude with a fifth.

'New Amsterdam' Season 4 focused on Max and Helen's complex dynamic after the former shuttled between London and US to manage things. The arrival of Michelle Forbes' Veronica Fuentes comes after the announcement during the Harvest Festival where Max and Helen Sharpe make their announcement that they would be leaving New Amsterdam and heading off to London. The fourth season was an emotional rollercoaster with multiple storylines and characters getting ample screen time. Now, the fifth season will look to tie up all the arcs.

While there is Season 5 in the offing, there will be no Season 6 as NBC announced that the medical drama will not be renewed.

“We’re so grateful to [creator/executive producer] David Schulner, [director/executive producer] Peter Horton, and our cast and crew for their incredible dedication, talent, and collaboration,” the statement read.

Erin Underhill, president of Universal Television, further added, “When I first read the pilot script for New Amsterdam, I knew we had a winner. We cheered Max’s disruption of the status quo and applauded when he asked his patients the simple yet profound question, ‘How can I help?’ Over the last four seasons, David, Peter, and our incredible cast have tackled important and thought-provoking stories that have touched on the human condition, but also made us laugh and imbued hope. We’re so proud of this series and are indebted to everyone involved in bringing New Amsterdam to life. Bravo!”
